Examples of good practice in community health services

The Community Network has collated examples of good practice from trusts and community interest companies (CIC) providing NHS community health services, to help share learning across the country and highlight the innovative work of the community sector. Many of the examples are of work carried out in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Celebrating community services

In December 2022, The Community Network hosted it's first week-long celebration of community services. The week highlighted the wide breadth of community services, promoted their importance to people's lives and their value contribution to the health and care system.

Look out for our next Celebrating community services week on 16 - 20 October 2023. Learn more about the campaign here.



Our wider examples are grouped into the following eight themes and have been collected since 2019:

Integrated care at neighbourhood level

Collaboration with primary care

Digital transformation

Delivering more care in the community  

Discharge to assess



Working with the social care sector
